INTRODUCTORY  ESSAY.

Juniper, Aquilegia wlgaris, Caltha palustris, etc. 2. Those
which are confined to Europe and India. These, again, be-
long partly to the Mediterranean Flora, as, for instance, Celtis,
Quercus Ilex, Oka Europtea, Myrtus commums, etc.; and
partly to that of Europe north of the Alps, including the
greater number of herbs and small shrubs. Meanwhile we
shall here confine ourselves to subjoining a list of 222 British
plants which extend into India. Many of these require a
more critical comparison; but we are convinced that the er-
rors which may be detected in our enumeration are too few
to invalidate the important general law. The list, indeed, is
very far from complete, as we have omitted all plants regard-
ing which we are not tolerably certain.
